LOVE and war make for a wonderful evening's entertainment as Louis de Bernieres' epic Captain Corelli's Mandolin plays at the Civic Theatre in Chelmsford on Tuesday October 13.

Mike Maran returns to the Civic with Alison Stephens on mandolin (who also played the mandolin in the Hollywood film adaptation) and Anne Evans on flute and piano, to recreate for the stage this captivating operetta.

Set during the Second World War on the Greek island of Cephalonia, the romantic tale introduces us to two storytellers, two musicians, two chickens, two aubergines, three puppets, two buckets, a tuba, a motorbike and a goat.

Captain Corelli's Mandolin tells the story of Dr Iannis, his daughter Pelagia, the heroic Italian soldier, Carlo Guercio, Captain Corelli, and the love they all share.

Full of laughter and tears, the joy of love, and ultimately, the triumph of life over death, it is a passionate story that sweeps you up with joy one minute then makes the fright and rage of war boil in the stomach the next.

This adaptation has completed over 600 performances worldwide and is back at the Civic by popular demand, so do not miss your chance to see this wonderful show in Chelmsford.

Tickets cost £14 (full-price) and £12 (concessions). To book your tickets call the box office on 01245 606505 or visit www.chelmsford.gov.uk/theatre
